Topshow’s humble beginnings started in Noosa, the Sunshine Coast. Having recently moved to Noosa with her three children in tow, Mary joined her mother and sister in the making of straw hats to sell at the Eumundi Market. With her early success and recognition of a lack of quality Australian made hats at the market, Mary began to see the opportunity of expanding the nascent and leisurely enterprise into something more serious. Topshow was suddenly born.
With the help of her close neighbour and friend Virgil Lohrey, the two began to develop and make hats designed with both quality and style in mind. Their attention to detail, quality workmanship and hard work led to a growing reputation amongst hat enthusiasts in the local area. Topshow suddenly became known for making high quality, hand-made Australian hats in Noosa, which eventually led to the name of its most original and iconic hat: the Noosa Hat.
